Al Held


Coming to prominence in the 1950s, American artist Al Held was a painter, working in the abstract expressionist and geometric styles. An art student in Paris and New York, he began his creative life in the Big Apple and worked there for many years. And although he was a part of these contemporary art movements, his work was unique and often deviated from the standard characteristics of these forms. The originality in his work came from his explorations of three-dimensional space, using colour and texture to express his meaning.
